The Lysimeter Research Group (LRG) was established in 1992 as a registered nonprofit association with free membership (ZVR nr: 806128239, Austria). It is organized as an executive board with an international scientific steering committee.
The main intentions of the LRG are:


  • advancing interdisciplinary exchange of information between researchers and users working in the field of lysimetry on an international level,
  • disseminating scientific knowledge to the public and
  • supporting decision makers.

The main activities are:


  • organizing a lysimeter conference every two years in Raumberg-Gumpenstein (Styria, Austria)
  • organizing excursions to lysimeter stations and related research sites around Europe
  • maintaining the website www.lysimeter.at that contains useful information about numerous lysimeter stations regarding their infrastructure, instrumentation and operation, as well as related links and references which may help scientists to find an appropriate research site for potential cooperation projects

The LRG wants to attract new members from all over the world, intensify co-operation with other research groups, and enhance and support new and innovative ideas and technologies in lysimeter research. The registration to the LRG is free of charge.
